To the group,

Thanks for the 51 replys. It looks like I bumbled my way through
this setup. The primary responses were:

-one to many fields. I had 5 fields, and there should have been 4.

-i did not have my editor set up to be able to perform a crontab -e.

Thanks again for everyone's help, and I will try to review my work a
little closer before posting.

Question for the Group,

I am running a sparc20 with solaris 2.5.1.

I have a user trying to set up a cron job to run every 5 minutes. I
had him vi a file called testcron to perform the following:

00,10,20,30,40,50 * * * * * /appl/home/user/test5

then load the file into crontab:

crontab testcron

i list it and it is in there:

crontab -l

However, it doesn't run. He can run it from the command line fine. I
check the cron log file an it is showing a return code of 137. Anyone
know where I can find a place to tell me what these return codes mean.

Will summarize
